This is the first of three installments in Yahoo Life's Unapologetically Suzanne video series with Suzanne Somers.

Suzanne Somers and her husband Alan Hamel have been married for more than 44 years, but their sex life isn’t slowing down. The 74-year-old Three’s Company alum is hardly shy about speaking about her hot-and-heavy romance with her 85-year-old spouse, routinely making headlines for spilling candid details of their bedroom antics. Now, the Step by Step star is sharing how she keeps things steamy as a senior citizen in the first episode of her three-part Yahoo Life series, "Unapologetically Suzanne."

“I picked the right husband. I believe he picked the right wife. We are unbelievably happy and secure together,” Somers tells Yahoo Life. “He's my everything. I love to please him. And that makes me feel very sexy when I'm pleasing him and same with him towards me.”

Somers, who has spoken extensively about how she believes hormone therapy has positively influenced her well-being, shares that it's also aided her sex life.

“I cannot emphasize sex enough,” she continues. “I've got my husband on hormones. He's been on hormones, testosterone replacement for 25 years. He's in the mood, I'm in the mood. Are we in the mood all the time? No! But a lot of the time. And if not, there's another hormone I take called oxytocin, which is the love and sex hormone that makes you feel very loving, but I don't even need it.”

What makes Somers feel sexy in her 70s? Mostly, it’s self-confidence.

“I like who I am, I like the way I look,” she says. “I take good care of myself. When I walk down the hallway toward my husband naked, then I know he's just really enjoying looking at me.”

Yet sometimes it takes getting out of the house to really get in the mood, she explains.

“Twice a week we go out on an actual date because I just love to get dressed up,” Somers shares. “I put on my high heels and a cocktail dress and he usually puts on his cool tight black pants and his black shirt and his white dinner jacket. I like the way we look together. We go out and have a cocktail and a great dinner and listen to the tinkling music. And we live a very romantic, sexy life.”

As for that time she told Jillian Barberie on her podcast she and Hamel had sex three times a day? Well, it's not every day. 

"We have had sex three times a day, one day. I was talking to Jillian Barberie on her podcast and she said, 'Is it true? You have sex twice a day?' And I went, 'Well, today it was three.'"

Age, she says, is nothing but a number when it comes to one’s sex life.

“The biggest misconception people have about sex over 70 is that you're not having sex anymore,” she adds. “And most of the 70-year-olds I know are having regular sex.”
